If anyone would have heard it would probably have been you Dana. Does Mr. Dodge ask you what you want? Do you have any say in what they do next?

I bet Vibram is working on a couple discs right now. But just like Dodge, Dana can't give away any secrets. We just have to be patient and hope something will be out by the Spring!

I should have known that I would get a cryptic reply

I personally am hoping for either Vibram's version of a Drone-type disc or an understable Lace.

Did anyone even see the pictures I posted of my disc? Was curious if anyone else has had this bubbling thing going on with their Vibrams..

I have a VO 2012 Ibex that has a couple bubbles like that, but not quite as large.

I wonder what causes it. At first it didn't bother me...but now I feel like taking a razor blade to it!

I'm not sure. I will see if I can get a picture of mine either tonight or tomorrow. Mine almost looks like the surface of the disc is de-laminating.

I've never seen it and I've probably handled more Vibram than most. My guess is that it got past QC and that it shouldn't mess with the flight too much.

As for the next disc. I'm not quite sure honestly. They (Steve/Vibram) ask for ideas and input, I believe the Sole was born at the request of the team?

As a player with some power, I look forward to the over stable version of the Lace and hope to see that type of disc next.

This!

I really like the Lace. Would like to see an overstable disc to compliment it.

Me too. I'm certainly no power player...but I can't imagine having much use for a disc that is less stable than the Lace already. It flies fairly understable for me. And it turns and burns in any kind of wind...I'm throwing a 169, 174, 175. Don't get me wrong...I love them...they glide forever. But I'd really like to see the overstable compliment to it first.
